Wordless Wednesday: Happy 3rd & 7th!

Hobo Mama wants you to know she's a professional blogger! Look at how professional she's being!

In May, Alrik turned three years old, and two weeks later in June, Mikko turned seven.
We had fun celebrating our boys!

Since we would be on our trip to London for Alrik's actual birthday,
we celebrated him early. He helped with his own cupcakes.

Guess he was happy with how they turned out,
despite the extra eggshell!

We gave him his gifts to start playing with
before we went on vacation.
These floating foam bath blocks were the biggest hit
— he spends every bath building towers and shapes!

On his actual birthday, we headed to Hamleys Toy Store in London.

Tasty!

Birthday boy!

In between birthdays and parties, we enjoyed gifts in the mail.
Alrik loved his pull-back busy train book,
Mikko and I are bedtime-reading
How to Train Your Dragon,
and both boys have played hard with Lego sets and Transformers from relatives!

Their sweet & talented cousin sent them home-sewn, personalized pillowcases.
If you're small enough, it doubles as a sleeping bag!

For Mikko's actual birthday, Alrik helped me make this rainbow cake.
It was Mikko's choice after I talked him down from a sculpted T Rex.
(I'm not a professional baker, dude.)
It didn't taste very good to me, but Mikko loved it,
and I loved how colorful it ended up!

Is this meat? Tell me it's some sort of meat.
And that you're sharing.

Hobo Mama == Happy 3rd & 7th!
Whatever it is, Mikko approves!

Hobo Mama == Happy 3rd & 7th!
That's one happy birthday boy.

Hobo Mama == Happy 3rd & 7th!
Finally (I know!), we had their PARTY, dinosaur-themed.
Even with just two families of friends over,
it was a crush, but a merry one.

Hobo Mama == Happy 3rd & 7th!
This cutie (Jennifer's L3) befriended one of the cats,
who wasn't sure quite what to make of her ardent new admirer.

The smorgasbord was all gluten-free to accommodate our guests,
from fruit plate to nacho bar to sundae bar for dessert.

Shannon dishes up.

Alrik was very pleased with his prehistoric gifts.

And the decorations.

Hobo Mama == Happy 3rd & 7th!
The older kids happily played Disney Infinity pretty much the whole time.

Hobo Mama == Happy 3rd & 7th!
Make a wish!

Hobo Mama == Happy 3rd & 7th!
Piñata time!
Sorry one is blurry — Google+ makes these for me automatically,
and I can't figure out how to get that one out!

Hobo Mama == Happy 3rd & 7th!
It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to.
Something to do with getting beaned with the stick.
Partying is dangerous!

Hobo Mama == Happy 3rd & 7th!
Especially for piñatas.
This one gets eviscerated.

Hobo Mama == Happy 3rd & 7th!
Then some of us headed out to the beach.

Happy birthday to my sweet, wild boys!

Aww, Happy Birthday to Alrik and Mikko! So cool. Loved seeing all of your photos.
TMNT! Adora and Juno are OBSESSED with this show. Adora keeps telling me that she thinks that Donatello is dreamy..oh, my gracious. But they seriously love it.
Mikko's cake is AMAZING! I'd love to make one like that for the girls (we already did Rainbow Day...Hmmm...maybe for Tanabata? Thanks for the inspiration!
